The FSO scales its first mountain with a stunning program that will leave you wanting more. Verdi’s exciting La Forza del Destino set a high bar with its gorgeous string melodies, lyrical woodwind solos, and powerful brass and percussion fanfares. Famed American illustrator Norman Rockwell said: “I love to tell stories in pictures. The story is the first thing and the last thing.” Composer Stella Sung’s Rockwell Reflections tells the story of five iconic Rockwell pictures with her gorgeous symphonic score. Abigail Rockwell will be on hand to narrate the story of her grandfather’s work, and each picture will be displayed on a large screen above the orchestra. Next, we’re On Top of the World with Brian Balmages’ new work for orchestra, and we’ll conclude with Aaron Copland’s American masterpiece Rodeo. What a start!
